Can we justify a Dragon Lord with Bow of Loren +Arcane bodkins, or is this a real waste of points?
I Really want to use my Dragon in 2000pt matches, it makes me warm inside. But the 60 points for the Loren+Bodkins combo leaves only 40pt for defence of the lord.
I never find that the Lord can do well at attacking in hand to hand combat, he can just Defend himself enough and let the dragon do the work. Therefore I was thinking Bow of Loren+Bodkins to dispose of those annoying Heavy Armoured units befor moving in for the kill.
Roughly i use a list that is like:
Dragon Lord with Mele+Defence items.
Alter Kindred Hero, Hail of Doom
2 x 10 Glade Guard
8 x Dryad
2 x 5 Glade Rider
1 x 5/6 Wild Rider
2 x Treemen
I have never usefully optimised the Dryads and i have not lost any of my 8 games, so im feeling that dropping Drads and Taking a Scroll Caddy may work better.
I fear that I may have to stick to the Defensive Dragon Lord, (of which there are many setups which we have previously talked about). Gotta leave the bow at home
